Logitech replaced its C910 webcam with the HD Pro Webcam C920, and as replacements typically do, the newer version brings with it a host of improvements. Here are the similarities and the differences.

Logitech C910 Versus HD Pro C920

  • Both record in full HD 1080p video at 30 frames per second. 
  • Both offer 720p for video calling.
  • Only the C920 offers motion detection.
  • The C920 can take 15-megapixel stills, whereas the C910 takes 10-megapixel stills.
  • Both have one-click uploading to Facebook.
  • Both have dual microphones.
  • Both work with Macs and PCs.
  • The C920 is larger. It measures 2.8 inches by 7.5 inches by 8.9 inches and weighs 1.04 pounds, while the C910 measures 3.5 inches by 5.5 inches by 7 inches and weighs 0.7 pounds.
  • The C920 features H.264 compression, which translates to faster and smoother HD video.
  • Both have autofocus, but the C920 builds on that with its 20-Step Autofocus feature.
  • The C920 has a tripod-ready base, which the CN910 does not.
  • Both are reasonably priced.


If you're going to be recording a lot of high-definition videos, the added benefits of the C920 just might be right up your alley. Otherwise, you can probably get away with the slightly less expensive C910 and still have a heck of a webcam.

Although the C920 was released in 2012, it is still in Logitech's active webcam product line. Other, newer webcams are available with 4K capture should you need that feature. The C910 is not still in Logitech's active product line, but it is widely available for purchase online.
